Bring Back Herm

Huh? This one really has to be explained to me, because I simply don't get it. Edwards became head coach in 2001. Did the Jets make the playoffs in 2000 under Al Groh, or in 1999 under Bill Parcells? The answer: NO, AND NO. How exactly is that inheriting a playoff team, exactly? In fact, under the combined regimes of Bruce Coslet/Pete Carroll/Rich Kotite/Bill Parcells/Al Groh (a combined 13 seasons), ya know how many times the Jets made the playoffs? Twice. That's it. Once in 1990, in which they handily lost to the Oilers, and in 1998, in which they blew it against the Denver Broncos.
In five years, Edwards brought us to the playoffs three times, which I think is pretty good, despite his flaws as a head coach. Results speak for themselves. Letting Herm Edwards slip away was a mistake. He rebuilt a slow, aging defense and developed Chad Pennington.
